More and more people are realising it makes greater sense to recycle - particularly when you can make stylish household and personal items from things that have been thrown out, broken or left over from home refurbishments. 'Junk for Joy!' proves there's no such thing as rubbish. Sian Berry takes materials found in skips and left in the street, as well as items picked up in junk and charity shops and, using simple, practical, professional techniques, creates a wide range of durable and useful items that would not look out of place in an upmarket department store. Accompanied by step-by-step photographs and simple instructions, 'Junk for Joy!' guides you through over 40 real-life, stylish projects that even those averse to DIY will find achievable. With a wealth of inspiring ideas, even the most high-street happy person will find this book a revelation.
Dubbed 'Environmental Viagra' by the Independent, Sian Berry was the Green Party's candidate for London Mayor in 2008 and the founder of the successful campaign group 'Alliance Against Urban 4x4s'. Sian appears regularly on national television.
